Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 16 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • In a large broiler-safe skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until browned, 4-6 minutes. Add green onion; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon. Wipe skillet clean.
  • For sauce, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth; gradually whisk in milk and cream. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 2-4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cheese.
  • Preheat broiler. For eggs, in a large bowl, whisk eggs, salt and pepper until blended. In same skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture; cook and stir just until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Remove from heat.
